Yes she is very beautiful, but does she represent the beauty of the Filipina that we are privileged to see every day here in the Philippines?  This little sweetie will probably never win a beauty contest because she is not nearly "white" enough and her nose is not "pointed" enough.  Sad to know that so many Filipina think they have to measure their beauty against the new winner.  Sorry - rant over. :56da632e94212_1(60):

To be fair I think has had a couple of holidays in the Philippines :whistling:

I was at a ferry terminal when she won and you'd have thought everyone in there had won. They were jumping and screeming. Even my partner was phoning all excited and going on about the Pinay beauty. 

I pointed out her name sounded very Scottish.  Sure enough her father is Scottish and mother Filipino but born and raised for 18 yrs in Australia, then educated in the USA.

That is why I was (secretly) rooting for miss Thailand or miss Vietnam. Of all the non Asiatic contestants they were the only ones that looked Asiatic

Yes they don`t get a lot to cheer about so maybe we should let them have this one.

It's not so much the OTT reaction of the people here, it's the guff that we read about her and her win -  Scottish father, Filipino mother, born in Australia and educated in USA yet somehow embodies all that is great about the Filipina woman!  Never let the facts spoil a good story!

What??  I don't believe the response or the intentions of this thread.  She is a Filipina and a beaut… period.  The Philippines has developed a trend to win beauty contests -- and for reason.  Filipina's are the most beautiful creatures on the planet.  

I only hope this doesn't entice more eligible foreigners to come here... it's no longer a secret.

My wife has come to the conclusion that she is not Filipina but an Australian with citizenship of the Philippines.She came to this conclusion without any help from me.

It would be interesting how long she has actually lived in the Philippines. I think even using the majority of countries Nationalizing laws she'd struggle to be classed as a Filipino.  Dual citizen Aussie probably and as for Filipino looks I'd say that is way off the mark. 

Depending on your preferences I'd say the Filipinos of Spannish decent tend to be the more attractive I can't name a Filipino that has both Filino parents and was born in the Philippines winning any major beauty paegent. 

Don't get me wrong I find the typical Island or province looking Filipino very attractive, but even my Filipino friends admit they find mixed race Filipinos more attractive. I've had them tell me that some girls that I find beautiful are classed as ugly to most Filipino guys. 

Even my Korean and Hong Kong friends have a completely different idea of beauty to me. 

At the end of the day whatever nationality she is I wouldn't kick her out of bed. :whistling:
